October was a bit mad. I moaned about my offline job a couple of times, wanted to pack it in a few times, got writer’s block smack-bang in the middle of an impending deadline, and consumed about 75% of the UK’s total caffeine intake.
I made $791.27 online in October.
Not sure it’s completely sunken in for me yet.
It was mostly earned through web writing, but there was also a new kid on the block – GlobalTestMarket – which earned me $50 (worth a bit less than that by the time I got the £28.03 cheque they sent me).
Proof of Payment…
2) One of my clients started paying me straight into my bank account
Will post up proof of payment for those two when I can.)
$791.27 is nowhere near the $2000/month I hope to be making one day, but it’s helping me visualise my target figure a lot more (as well as helping pay some bills).
MY AIM FOR THIS MONTH…
I have a client who’s an absolute sweetheart. I enjoy working for him and feel quite fortunate to have him on my books. However, he’s my highest-paying client and accounts for over half of my monthly online income.
That scares me a bit.
Therefore, I’d like to get more clients onboard this month. Regular clients. To redress the balance (as well as inch closer to my $2k/mth target).
Two or three more clients would be good. At good rates, too. If they can offer a rate as close to the rate my highest-paying client’s currently paying me (and preferably more), then I’m good to go, baby! Easier said than done – but possible.
At the moment, though stressful, my part-time offline job and my web writing job complement each other financially. However, I’m really looking to replace one with the other (and therefore quit my offline job). I wanna do that SO bad. I dislike being a part of the 9-5 world, even on a part-time basis.
Getting extra writing clients onboard would mean I’d be able to move away from that.
So, wish me luck. We’ll see how much hugging November gives out.
Have a good month, people. Make it shine jello.
